ParaNorman International Trailer

"Do you see ghosts, like, all the time?!" Focus Features has debuted another short new international trailer for Laika's ParaNorman, their upcoming stop-motion animated horror comedy starring Norman, just a normal boy who can speak to the dead. The first US teaser trailer was debuted back in October, but this new one is a bit different and sheds a bit of light on the story and Norman as a character. Norman is voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee and while this international trailer does have subtitles on it, they at least use the original English voices as well. This looks like so much fun, can't wait to see more over the next year. Enjoy!

Watch the short new international trailer for Laika's ParaNorman, originally via YouTube:

Norman, a boy who's able to speak with the dead, has to take on zombies, ghosts, witches and, worst of all, grown-ups, to save his small town from a centuries-old curse. The voice cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tucker Albrizzi, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, Chris Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin and John Goodman.

ParaNorman is being directed by Sam Fell (director on The Tale of Despereaux and Flushed Away) & Chris Butler (storyboard on Coraline and Corpse Bride). The original screenplay is by Chris Butler. Stop-motion animation studio Laika is producing out of Portland, OR, with Focus Features distributing. ParaNorman is currently set to land in theaters in 3D starting August 17th, 2012 late next summer. Look good so far?

Feel a lot of Henry Selick in this. The movie looks awesome, love the whole look of and feel of it. This is a proper bigger kids flick. Coraline was pretty good, Corpse Bride was okay...However The Tale of Despereaux and Flushed Away were not the greatest movies ever...fingers crossed!

Looks very cool. Too bad no one will see it.

Why do so many of these stop-motion films have to involve gothic/horror/macabre/whatever elements? It's odd...

Because of Tim Burton and Henry Selick.
